Many members of the BLV community face difficulties independently navigating indoor and outdoor spaces.
Cane is currently creating a pair of IoT smart-glasses that provide indoor/ outdoor navigation, and utility awareness information to users through bone conduction technology. The glasses will have bluetooth capability to connect to pre-existing navigational apps for ease of use.
CANE IN THE FUTURE
Our ultimate goal is to create a series of navigational devices for New Zealand's BLV community. These new devices will include features such as obstacle detection, voice input and remote smartphone control.
By creating the Cane Glasses, we aim to transform New Zealand's assistive technology industry.
